Welcome Charlie Brown to VIP Rescue. I am a 4 year old male F1B Labradoodle, and I am glad to be at VIP Rescue. I have been neglected, living outside, or left inside for 12+ hours at a time by myself, no vet care, and no exercise. My owner cannot take care of me, so she agreed to send me to VIP. I goto the vet tomorrow, so we will find out what things look like there. I am under weight, was eating OL Roy, and ignored. I love to play ball, I love to ride in cars, and I have lots of energy. Stay tuned, because things are about to take an awesome turn for me at VIP RESCUE.   I will be available for adoption soon.  I am being fostered in Leesburg, FL.  I will require a fenced yard, and no small children.  I need obedience training, and lots of exercise daily.

Lady UPDATE from her foster MOM

My observation: she likes to run around and her legs don’t bother her at all. She loves the yard. Once she knows you, she doesn’t leave your site, loves to kiss you, snuggle up and likes to bring a toy. She is good with other dogs but can be protective when it comes to her toys

Lady is am amazing dog. Her handicap doesn’t bother her at all. This morning we went on 1/2 walk. What did I say “walk”. I meant “run”. She runs and I had to run myself. When she falls, she gets up without hesitation and runs. Just like Gracie. She loves unconditionally and shadows me and Milo everywhere

Mr. Morgan/Largo

Meet Mr. Morgan!!!

vip morgan vip morgan b




A Great Update for Mr. Morgan.  He is Ready for his new FUR-Eva home!!!  He looks and feels fabulous!!!

Mr.Morgan is an adorable little Shih-mix. A young 9 yrs old boy.  He is about 19 lbs.
He does ok with other dogs, but would be best as an only child.
He would thrive with an experienced dog owner who can keep his little personality in check.
He is housebroken and Loves his walks!

He still needs some help at the dog park learning to play well with others. And though he likes to be brushed, he’s not great with grooming.
He has a yeast infection and is still on daily meds. He will need to stay on his meds and have follow-ups with the vet to make sure this is taken care of and resolved.
He is up to date on all vaccines and shots, flea and heartworm meds (Heartworm Neg), he has had a hernia removed, neutered, micro chipped, and has had a dental.
He’s very smart and playful. A great little dog that’s come a long way!!
Apply for Mr. Morgan today!!!





Morgan is a cute, 9yrs-young, 18Lb. Shih-Mix.  The previous owner was not longer able to care for him, so they (lovingly) turned him over to VIP Rescue for the medical attention he needs and to be re-homed.

Poor Mr. Morgan has suffered with a yeast infection and that is why his skin looks like this.

20170203_114220 20170223_131328

 We are in the process of taking care of this, along with an ear infection, a dental and a hernia. 

He is neutered, micro chipped and will be updated on all his shots and vaccines soon.  He will be up to date on all his monthly meds. He is heartworm Neg!!

He will have a dental and we will remove the hernia, in time. He just needs to get a bit stronger.

Mr. Morgan does not like children. He does not like when anyone get in is face, or touches his ears…though we believe some of that may be due to the painful ear infection.

He also had a difficult time with groomers, due to a very horrible grooming in his past when they burnt him all over.

We are hoping when his medical conditions are better,  his attitude will change for the better too!

But for now, he’s a nice little guy that needs lots of medical attention and Love.

He is on some meds and this is going to take a bit of time and multiple vet visits to cure the poor guy of his problems.

He seems to be house broken.  He loves his walks and looking out the window. 


When his coat and skin get fixed, he’s going to be a gorgeous ginger colored boy.

Apply for Mr. Morgan Today!!!

Glory/St Petersburg

Well, Glory Be! If you’ve been looking for a cuddler who loves to monitor the backyard but who is never too busy to stop and give you a kiss, well, look no further. Glory is your girl.  At a petite 11 pounds and sprightly 10 years old, this beautiful girl likes nothing more than to spend time with her human, unless it’s heading out the doggy door to make sure that birds and squirrels have not taken over the backyard. She’s got wonderful manners – she’s housebroken and walks well on a leash – but she does stand her own ground as far as toys are concerned. She’s beautiful inside and out – and is looking for a someone special to take her home and let her enjoy walks around the block, lazy days in the sun and more pets than anyone can imagine.
Glory is current on her shots, micro chipped spayed , on heartworm prevention and has had a dental. To welcome Glory to your heart and home please submit your application.

She’s taking daily meds for her hyperthyroidism and must continue on them for life.  She is also being treated for Cushing’s.  But she eagerly takes all her meds in  tiny pieces of a Pill Pockets.

She’s up to date on all her vaccines, shots and meds.

She gets along with everyone!!!  She is just a big Love that adores belly rubs!!!

This 9yr. young girl, lives up to her name.

She is good on a leash and just loves to be with you.  She gets along with everyone and dogs too!  :-)



Update on Ms. Diva.  

This past week, she got a nice groom at Fluffy Cuts.  And a trip to the Vets.  She has bloodwork done, and the vets seem to think, other than a few things in her bloodwork, she’s doing great.  She had her dental and is on some antibiotics.  The vet seems to think these antibiotics may help with a lot of the elevated things on her tests.

She is still working on the potty training, but she is as sweet as can be!

She loves to follow you around and sleep closely with you.  

She’s beginning to get a little more playful and active, now that her ailments are being addressed and she’s feeling better. 

She’s smart and a really great dog!!!


Here she is hanging out with my dog, Rascal….LOL





She is a bit overweight and on a doggie diet.  She is currently 22 pounds and medically, she’s still working on some things.


She’s just been spayed and had some mammary tumors removed.  She still has some follow-ups with the vet so we can continue her road to full recovery :-)  And she is due for a vet’s appt. this week, as well as a day at Fluffy Cuts/Largo for “the works”! lol


Thank you to Fluffy Cuts for the clean up they could do for her at this time.

She came to us loaded with fleas, matted, and a smelly mess.  She was just neglected, poor girl.    *sigh*


You would never know anything’s bothering her now, as far as her attitude goes.

They say she’s a (big) MaltiPoo, but whatever she is, she’s just a great little dog!!!

We are working on house breaking….

She has been micro chipped, spayed had the tumors removed.  She will have a dental this week or next.

Apply for The Diva today!!

OH…and She loves belly rubs!!

Yes you are right !
I am one good looking poodle  !
I am also very smart and allot of fun too . I am all about fun and love to play .My vision for a forever life would be you and me and lots of toys.  Sure I am not perfect but but being blind not not stop me !! Don’t let my vision issue stop you from seeing the value of a dynamic companion pet . Would you believe I live in a second floor apartment ! The world for me is found in my nose,It  possess up to 300 million olfactory receptors in their noses, compared to about six million in people. I told you I was smart !.
I like people , kids and dogs. I am good on a leash and love my walk time with my foster family.
I am in great health at 9 years young and I a about 17 lbs of perfection. I have had all those shots , micro chipped neutered and on heartworm prevention.
Let’s meet up and toss a toy and you will find I am just what you were seeking !



Jolly 1
Jolly is approximately 10-12 years old.  He completely blind but finds his crate after eating and walking around a little.  He sleeps ALOT, but does like to be in your lap. He is up to date on shots, microchipped, neutered and has had dental, at which time he lost most of his teeth.    I’m so grateful that VIP Rescue saw past my age, my blindness and gave me a chance to know that human touch feels good, a dry warm bed is so nice to sleep in and food every day twice a day. My past was really horrific. Earn your badge of honor by adopting a Senior dog.  Sure no one knows how much time I have left, but just a chance to be loved and safe is all I ask for.  There are several seniors on our site, so if I’m not your forever senior please go to and check us out.  The best love, is the love of a senior dog.

To welcome Jolly to your heart and home please submit your application !

Thanks to Karen at the Mutt Hut for the fresh groom !

Gentle Gina was surrendered to us as a stray after 2 weeks of posting as found.

Her ear tattoo, tells us she was a breeder. Gentle Gina is frail and frightened. Gentle Gina has discovered and likes grass , as opposed to a chicken wire crate.  Gentle Gina  has little to no socialization with humans. Gentle Gina  has been spayed and has had a dental..She is now current on her shots and micro chipped. A lifetime of neglect, has left her with only 2 teeth. Gentle Gina  has a cataract in one eye but the other eye looks OK. We estimate Gentle Gina  is 9 years young. Gentle Gina  may be younger

NEGLECT TAKES IT’S TOLL. Take a stand TODAY , to stop the greeder breeders from torturing little lives by making them cash cows. STOP PUPPY MILLS ………..NOW

Gentle Gina is  looking for her forever home. It will be a loving, caring safe home so Gentle Gina becomes the Princess she deserves . Are you the human that won’t let her down Thanks to Deela of Sandy Paws grooming for the loving and kind groom.







Eliza Doolittle has lived up to her name. This beautiful girl now barks at visitors at the door, tries to play with other dogs and just wants to be a member of a family who will love her and whom she can love with all of her big heart. She still needs to put on weight, but what lady doesn’t like to hear the words “Time for a treat”?’ Her medical notes say she’s a roughly 12-year-old, apricot, miniature poodle who needs a dental and a spay and who has a heart murmur. What they don’t say is that she’s beautiful, she’s feisty, she loves to walk, be petted and sit on laps, she travels well in a car and  is quiet when she needs to be, yet playful when she’s encouraged. And the biggest and best thing they don’t say: She’s as sweet as she is beautiful – maybe even sweeter. She is current on her shots , micro chipped, heartworm negative, and spayed.
